The theme for the 2010 ASTHO, NACCHO, & Safe States Alliance webcast series is “Policy Approaches to Injury & Violence Prevention.” The four webinars in this series are Webinar 1: Policies to Prevent Bullying in Schools; Webinar 2: Policies to Promote Injury-Free, Livable Communities; Webinar 3: State & National Policies to Promote Motor Vehicle Safety; Webinar 4: Policy Approaches to Injury Prevention:  Successes, Strategies, & the ASTHO Presidential Challenge.

 

Webinar 1 focuses on bullying. Bullying has long been a serious and complex public health problem. Given the recent increase in media attention to bullying incidents and tragedies nationwide, the need for policies that appropriately and effectively address bullying in schools has become increasingly apparent. This webcast features presentations by professionals and advocates who are actively involved in shaping anti-bullying policies. During this webcast, speakers discuss their experiences with anti-bullying legislation (including legislation related to cyberbullying), describe the process needed to get such policies enacted, and provide insights on how state and local public health professionals can get more involved in the development and implementation of these policies.
